    So im going to upgrade from a PC to a new 21.5 iMac (the lowest end version), and i want to have XP on it as well. My problem is i have an XP upgrade disk instead of a full instillation disk.

    Install Windows 98 then during the XP install it will see that you have 98 installed and let you upgrade.
